LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- With her three kids in tow on Mother's Day evening, police say a Louisville woman ran down and tried to kill the children's father with a van after an argument.
Police did not say what started the argument, but Shanice N. Brown, 26, told officers she attacked the father of her three children, punching him in the face and then chasing him out of the Clinton Place apartment with a large rock, according to a police report from suburban Shively.
When she couldn't catch the man, who was not named, she got in her van with their children and drove around looking for him, the report said.
She found him walking on Dixie Highway at about 5:54 p.m. and told investigators she "intentionally drove the vehicle into the victim," the report said.
"She wanted him to leave her alone and she wanted to put an end to it," the report quoted Brown as saying.
Brown was arrested about two hours after the incident, the report said.
The victim corroborated Brown's version of events, saying she swerved off Dixie Highway and intentionally hit him with the van, according to the police report. The man's condition was not immediately available.
Brown was charged with attempted murder, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid or assistance, and reckless driving. She was being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $100,000 cash bond.
